"Jewelry and gems are the great passion and joy of my life." Rita Livia Erikson
Jewelry artist RITA-LIVIA ERIKSON's eye-catching and thought-provoking jewelry creations with a modern and fresh formal language excitingly and skilfully interweave classic goldsmith's techniques and timeless symbols. The creative force and recognizable handwriting of the artist, a graduate of the Estonian Academy of Arts, are complemented by internationally recognized knowledge in gemmology.
Rita-Livia Erikson started learning stone faceting in the United States and then continued working in the same field in a ruby mine in Mozambique. She became a certified gemmologist in the heart of the colored stone world, Bangkok, where she studied at the Gemmological Institute of America (GIA). During her studies, the artist first delved into the in-depth knowledge and identification of various precious stones used in jewelry, and then also diamonds.
The distinctiveness of Rita-Livia Erikson's jewelry is shaped by a unique and well-thought-out form language and high-level goldsmithing, including a delicate filigree technique. The value of the jewelry is enhanced, and the message is further enhanced by the precious stones carefully selected and polished by the artist.
